This thesis examines the effect of attack velocity on the outcome of Lanchester- type engagements between forces with range dependent kill-rates. Range dependent (linear and quadratic) kill-rates are considered, and analytic solutions to Lanchester- type equations are utilized in this study. By varying the attack velocity, the effects on terminal force strengths are investigated for the case when an attacking force has the initial fighting strength superiority, and for the case when a defending force has the initial fighting strength superiority.
